Artist's Description

A turtle with a job: This cast aluminum turtle is one of several spouts charged with keeping water flowing in the fountain at the center of Real del Monte.

An ancient mining village “El Real” has long suffered from frequent, nearly perpetual, drought on the surface despite an abundance of water underground – a fact which often prevented operating the mines and forced miners to work half-submerged in water.

Real del Monte, Hidalgo Mexico; Olympus E-3, 54mm, 1/25, f/18, ISO 400
